Great Home or Travel Core Workout For You (Live with Coach Cheryle)

Hey there,

I have a great home or travel core workout for you that we did in our Fit Body Boot Camp Program today.

No equipment needed, so when you start your travel this summer remember this resource.

I even created a Live video with Coach Cheryle Matteo so you really understand the movements.

Here is the workout….

Perform the following 7 exercises below in order. This is a ladder workout that ascends & descends in volume.

Round #2: Perform 15 Reps

Keep the tempo slow and controlled with a focus on breathing with each movement.

Remember to set up prior to each movement for success:
